A canal-front mansion at 40 Knightsbridge Pde West, Sovereign Islands is 2021’s Gold Coast House of the Year.
A sleek waterfront mansion in the multi-millionaire’s playground of Sovereign Islands has been named the Gold Coast’s House of the Year.
Dubbed The Pinnacle, the commanding seven-bedroom residence in one of the city’s most exclusive enclaves took out top honours at the Gold Coast Master Builders Housing and Construction Awards on Saturday night.
Around 540 guests attended the gala ceremony at the RACV Royal Pines Resort, where the local industry applauded innovative builds and renovations from across the Coast.

Winners ranged from beach houses and acreage retreats to the gleaming triple-tower Jewel Residences at Surfers Paradise, which claimed Project of the Year for Multiplex Constructions.
In crowning Jewel, judges said: “Jewel Residences by Multiplex is a showcase project where vision, design, engineering and construction all meet to create something truly remarkable”.
The project team overcame huge engineering and construction challenges posed by building three unique, 40 level-plus towers, each with different floor plates.

Among other awards, JG Building Projects took out Best Individual Home from $1.25m to $2m, for their stunning Palm-Springs inspired coastal build, The Palms at Burleigh Heads.
The property caused a stir when it went to auction earlier this year, with hundreds turning out to see the dream house sold under the hammer for $3.75m.
The Palms at Burleigh Heads was one of QLD’s most popular listings when it went to auction earlier this year.
Master Builders Gold Coast regional manager Adam Profke congratulated winners across 47 categories.
“The diversity and quality of building work across the Gold Coast, particularly during this time of uncertainty, is testament to the resilience of our local industry,” he said.
“From educational hubs, soaring luxury towers and heath retreats, to canal-front mansions, acreage-living homes and Hamptons-inspired abodes, the Gold Coast building community came together and smashed it out of the park.”
The Palm Springs-inspired home has a high-end coastal aesthetic.
